Klaar is Kees (Bob’s your uncle), 1995

Klaar is Kees (Bob’s your uncle), 1995
sticker in artist’s magazine ‘AP’, no. 1/1995
Ø 5 cm
edition 120
publisher: Galerie van Gelder, Amsterdam

Note / In The Netherlands the first name Kees immediately conjures up the expression ‘Klaar is Kees’ (Bob’s your uncle), which is a succinct way of saying that the work is finished. For the first issue of Kees van Gelder’s magazine AP, Van Warmerdam made a sticker with the text ‘Klaar is Kees’, with the instructions to stick it on the last page of the magazine. The fact that there was never a second edition of the magazine gave the sticker a prophetic significance.
